Welcoming Spring

Happy first day of spring, everyone!
I am thrilled that spring has finally arrived! I don't know about in your area, but in N.C. I wish the weather would understand that spring has arrived and so should the spring weather. Our weather has been so bizarre lately; warm and sunny one day, cold and rainy the next. Ugh! Earlier this week I decided to go through my iPhoto to do some organizing and cleaning out of my photos. Little did I know that it would lead to nostalgia of spring and warmer temperatures. Through my photos I realized how much I love spring and all it has to offer! 

Attend Baseball Games
In the spring I love going to our hometown baseball games. My family has season tickets so I get to enjoy the weather and outdoor sports simultaneously! Another great aspect of the baseball games is their Bark Park nights where you are invited to bring your animals out on the lawn to enjoy the game! You know Dingo and I are suckers for that! ;-) 

Watch the Flowers Bloom
Here in my town we have a ton of beautiful flower parks and gardens. Each year right as spring rolls in I take my DSLR camera and have a blast capturing all the beauty these areas have to offer. It is so nice and relaxing to walk through the seven acres of paths filled with beautiful flowers on each side! How can you not be cheery surrounded by that?!?

Wear Spring-y Clothes
If there is one thing I look forward to it is definitely shedding my sweaters and winter layers for flowy tops and dresses! I live for the day when I finally get to pull out my spring items from storage and add them to my closet (eep, I may have already done this!) The styling choices for spring are always so amazing. 

Playing Outside with Dingo
This guy just "gets" spring and being outside. Reading a book outside? He's in my lap. Doing a little porch drinking? He's basking in the sunlight next to me! He is a lover of sunshine in the spring and summer, and that makes him the best dog ever (but I may be a little biased!)

Enjoy Evening Sunsets
Is there anything better than it being lighter until 7:30 p.m.?? I think the only thing that may beat that are the beautiful evening sunsets that follow. I can't tell you how often I bring along my camera when I know I will be somewhere around sunset....just so I can capture it's beauty (I guess that's the photographer in me!) I am a complete sucker for sunsets and they always put me in the happiest moods! While sunsets in the winter are alright, nothing compares to the beauty of the ones in spring!

Attending Outdoor Concerts
Spring means one thing in the music industry....the return of outdoor concerts. And in turn that leads to one happy Emily! I look forward to seeing the line ups of outdoor concerts in my area. It is so fun to get a big group together for a fun outdoor concert!

Going to the Beach
The return of spring means the return of beach days! I am only a three hour drive to the beach so it is perfect when I can make weekend trips to bask in the sunlight and lay in the sand. I'm heading to the beach this weekend with Brian and friends and we're crossing our fingers for great weather for the first weekend of spring!

What are some things you look forward to in spring?


  1. We're still buried under at least three feet of snow, but I'm excited for spring flowers, fashion, and fun! I love outdoor events like concerts and sports, although I'm more of a golf girl myself.


  2. I am so excited for spring and summer and warmer weather. We've already bought tickets to two outdoor concerts in the next few months and I can't wait!

  3. I'm so tired of the seasons changing each day! One day it's super warm out and then the next we have to bring out the jackets. Spring needs to be here for good!

  4. Amazing pics! So excited for what spring has to offer!

  5. loved this post with all the pictures! definitely perfect things to do during spring/summer! I agree though, the weather here is crazy! Wish it would just go ahead and warm up already :)

  6. You made me ready for spring! I, too, cannot wait for baseball and soccer games to start up. I LOVE outdoor concerts, and starting in May we will get to have free outdoor country concerts every Thursday night. I can't wait!


  7. Great list!! I love living in the South and all the fun things to do during this time of year. Y'all will have so much fun this weekend, I am going to the beach in June with my husbands family so I am counting down the days. Your dog is so cute!!

  8. I am so jealous you're so close to the beach! I cannot tell you how pumped I am to hopefully see the cold weather gone for good!

  9. Yes please to all of these! I LOVE going to baseball games when the weather is warm and getting a hotdog and giant, overpriced beer. All part of the experience!

  10. We LOVE baseball games!! My hubs went to a spring training game on Saturday and I was so bummed I missed it!
    Lucky you live so close to the beach! I would totally be a beach bum if I could... and by that I mean I'd plant my bum in the sand and not get up until winter came :)

  11. I love when the bulls have their bark nights. We always bring the dogs!

  12. so excited for baseball/blooming flowers!
